Coulda doesn’t define you.

Today’s Five minute Friday prompt word is Could. You can join in the fun here: https://fiveminutefriday.com  As a writing community we write for 5 minutes(ish) no perfection or edits, the words just flow.

I could of been a doctor, lawyer or teacher,
If I only tried harder at school,
I could of been a pastor, minister or missionary,
If I decided bible school was my thing.
I could be 6ft tall if nature didn't have it's way,
4ft 11" is good enough for me.
I could of been rich if I had that one idea,
An entrepreneur, celebrity or more.

But coulda, shoulda, woulda is only a mindset,
I am rich in ways beyond this world,
I have health and family,
And most importantly,
a God that loves me so.

My identity is in Christ,
And nothing else.
I am defined by Jesus not anything else.
Could does not exist in a person of love and forgiveness. 
I am who I am,
Faults and all,
Created to love and share Jesus to all.
I could be anything in this world,
But I chose to follow Jesus,
And do best I can do,
to show his love, grace and mercy along the way,
Spreading the gospel in every way.
